While we’re still a few months out from the official arrival of Sony’s VR gaming headset platform, we got more details on it. All of this info is courtesy of a user guide revealed a little bit early for it on PlayStation Asia’s site.
So for starters, you’re gonna need some room to really rock out w/ this thing which isn’t really much a surprise. You’re gonna need around 60 square feet of space to be more exact. You will also need to be seated while playing. Although, I did play a demo of Batman: Arkham VR standing but didn’t anything that required standing up or actually walking.
You will be able to use PSVR while wearing glasses BTW. You’ll have a few different modes: Social Screen, Mirroring Mode, Separate Mode, and Cinematic Mode. Social lets you play w. friends & family, Mirroring lets you mirror your VR image onto an external screen, Separate lets you play co-op or versus w/ players on a TV, and Cinematic allows you to enjoy PS4 games, videos, & other media on a virtual big screen.
The PlayStation VR is set to arrive on October 13th starting at $399. Any of you PS4 owners looking to pick this up?
